Yawn. It looks like the f90 grill. They can't keep rehashing the same design cues for every generation and model.

If they reverted to something like this to please the critics I'd be disappointed.

Just remove the hood line and I’ll look much better.

Similar to my thoughts. I still don't like the new grill but the horizontal bars help break up the huge Edsel type grill and make it somewhat less offensive. Very much like what a European license plate would do.

Think he was meaning just proportions of grill and headlights and just the main architecture of the front end.

The design can be whatever but when you throw a disproportionate object on the face of the car that has no business being their and it's not even supported by the surrounding shapes it's just a mess and ya no timelessness about it. You end up with a car that is no more than a quickly passing fad that is in and out and forgotten.

Don't want bmw to start creating disposable cars that don't have a long life to their designs. Again beauty is in the eye of the beholder and to some it will tick the right boxes and it may sell like hot cakes but time will tell.

One of the hardest things to do is to create a beautiful car, something you want to stare at for hours and marvel at its beautiful lines. It's easy to design a flavor of the week, but to truly create a timeless beauty is what these companies should be about. That's how you get me to pay almost 6 figures for your car if you create a car that's more or less shock value and screaming look at me without real substance I'll just go elsewhere.

I remember way back when they started the flame surfacing and how the bmw enthusiasts where all crying murder !!! And sent Chris bangle death threats for ruining their brand and it eventually caught on and then More manufacturers copied that look and now at some point they will have to explore something new and daring and turn up the heat and do something that will again make people uncomfortable but you have to, to stay relevant you need to keep things fresh. We have to stay uncomfortable to keep things moving.

It's hard but sometimes you got to brake a few eggs to make an omelette.
Avoid omelets! Then you won't killing baby chickens!

If you think this would be to please critics, you're out of touch. I've shown the renderings to coworkers who have no affiliation with BMW and they thought it looked much worse than the F8X.

And hey, if the internet can bitch loud enough for a studio to change the Sonic the Hedgehog design, maybe there's a chance :

Sometimes I feel those who complain about the "hood line" used to complain about seams in their socks during their childhood

Looks nice, but at this point you're just buying a mini 8, I suppose.

Fucking hell if it looked like this, I would have bought one! This looks SO MUCH BETTER than the garbage front end we're actually getting.

It's puzzling to witness this thread accumulating less 20 pages worth of polarizing comments. Early signs of acceptance of the inevitable?

Good render but this is nothing but the M8 with a different hood. Then it makes the stable similar to MB with the new e klasse, CLA, c klasse and AMG GT in terms of fascia styling.

Well, it's amazing. It looks so aggressive that it's almost scary.

I don't see this monster approaching from my mirror yet, but I'm already scared.
